The 2016 Formula 1 season will pass its halfway point this weekend with the Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest.

Nico Rosberg continues to lead the drivers’ championship, but his advantage has fallen from 43 points to just one in the space of five grands prix.

Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton has won four of those races, giving him plenty of momentum heading to one of his favorite tracks on the calendar.

Only Michael Schumacher has won as many times as Hamilton at the Hungaroring, the pair equal on four victories. Curiously though, this is the only grand prix Mercedes has not won in the hybrid era, with Ferrari and Red Bull winning the last two races.

Previewing what promises to be a thrilling weekend of racing, NBCSN pit reporter Will Buxton brings you the latest edition of Paddock Pass.
